Dear Mr Kuch,

KONTRONIK released a new software version for its HELI JIVE 120+HV ESC line with software number 11. The latest version includes a revised mode 8 (external governor mode) which allows using the MIKADO VBAR governor function. Mode 8 has been widely and successfully tested by MIKADO and KONTRONIK. Therefore, KONTRONIK approves using mode 8 of the HELI JIVE 120+HV together with VBar Version 5.2.4 and KONTRONIK PYRO 700 motor series.To receive the latest software it is necessary to send the HELI JIVE 120+HV with a completed service form to KONTRONIK. Regular lead time for installing the update and sending the ESC out again is 2-3 business days. I will send all mine out this week

Hi guys

Thanks. Black looks good.

It came with a new narrower and taller heat sink...... factory glued, as requested.

Tommy, No, not the regular 120A, black 120A is using HeliJive hardware that's why it could do it.

The normal helijive is red, the black is when you purchased a limited edition combo with a engraved motor.

Sitting next to the heli jive 120hv that i got the other day was the pyro 700/450. Somewhat leading question I know but would I gain any significant improvement in this motor over the Scorp 5020/450 that I have in my 90 size JR F3C heli. I was controlling that eng with the CC120HV V2.

Just your thoughts guys. Sorry to hijack this thread!

Callum.

Suppose to be about 20% more power from the motor with regards to the ESC, I believe the only difference is it is a Heli Jive ESC, it was out with the new hardware before the Heli Jive line actually got released. I am in the process of sending it back to Kontronik to get my most current firmware put on mine, but I believe the caps on all the heli jives are probably rated the same, regardless or black edition or regular. The only difference is engraved and a black case on the ESC, the motor is a whole different story though, different magnet, windings, bearings, shaft, etc.

Any other upgrades? Wish I could bail out of an auto with the Standard jive. I guess that is why the heli jive came out.
